Celebration of ICAN and the Nobel Peace Prize

December 10, 2017 | 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Leif Erikson Lodge, 2245 NW 57th St, Seattle, WA 98107

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) won the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in passing the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This is an historic achievement, and in this hostile political climate, we must take time to celebrate our progress toward a nuclear-free world.

We’ll have food and drinks, music from the Seattle Peace Chorus and Marcia Takamura, and remarks from local leaders including Bruce Amundson, President of Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility; Michael Ramos, Executive Director of the Church Council of Greater Seattle, Kim Nesselquist, Consul of Norway, and Stan Shikuma, with Seattle Kokon Taiko.

The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is recommended. RSVP here.
